Hi swagman,

You can lump the commands into a single zonecfg execution by passing them as a single string argument in which the commands are separated by semicolons. Using your example:

zonecfg -z zfoo "set zonepath=/zonefs/zfoo; add net; set physical=foonic0; end"

Hope that helps,

I am trying to configure zones by running a series of
commands because I want to script setting up zones.
The man page for zonecfg only shows interactive examples,
and the PDF documentation suggests exporting a config,
then editing it, then using zonecfg -f. I don't want to
write expect scripts or edit files -- I just want to
run some commands to create and modify zones.

For the global scope, this works:

    zonecfg -z zfoo set zonepath=/zonefs/zfoo

But for other scopes I can't find an invocation that works.
For example, if I would do this interactively:

        zonecfg:zfoo> add net
        zonecfg:zfoo:net> set physical=foonic0
        zonecfg:zfoo:net> end

how would I do it non-interactively? I can't find any
invocation of zonecfg that lets me both specify scope
and set a property. This works, but is dorky:

        printf "add net\nset physical=foonic0\nend\n" | zonecfg -z zfoo

So...is there any good general way to configure zones
by running a command or series of commands?

Thanks for any help,
